Understanding the Market
One of the best benefits of monitoring new home listings is that it will grant you important insights for understanding the real estate market that you’ll soon be navigating.
While an experienced expert real estate professional is usually in the best position to gauge the market and provide strategic assessments, here are some metrics that you can look at to get an idea for yourself:
Active Listings - The number of active (still for sale) listings provides an idea of the market inventory, an important concept for understanding the market as a whole. If you understand anything about basic economics, this value provides the “supply” side of the supply-demand curve. More supply generally means lower prices, and vice versa.
Average Days On Market - How long homes are staying on the market before they get sold is another important gauge of how hot the market is. If homes are on the market for a short period of time, that indicates higher demand, and more competition for available homes. If the average time on the market is less than a month, that’s generally a sign of a seller’s market.
Listing Price vs Closing Price - If you have access to these numbers, it can be very instructive to learn whether homes are generally selling for more or less than the asking price. Homes selling for over the asking prices are indicative of a competitive market.
Note that you should always approach these metrics and statistics with a critical mind. Some might indicate that you’re operating in a seller’s market, even though the particular type of property that you’re looking for is experiencing a buyer’s market.

Monitoring new listings in your market is all well and good, but it means nothing if you’re not ready to act when the right listing comes along. Here are some tips to stay ahead of the market:
Get your finances ready - Make sure you have your financing pre-approved and don’t make any big financial commitments or moves while you’re waiting for the right property. Better yet, have cash on hand to put down an offer quickly.
Keep your schedule open - You should be ready to view a property or meet with sellers at a moment’s notice.
Know what you want - Have a hard list of your needs and wants, and stay strict on it. Knowing exactly what you want and need before you start looking will make you more ready to commit when you find it.
Narrow your search - Related to the tip above, having a narrower search will improve your ability to rapidly assess listings for suitability. Focusing in on a specific area and price point are the two best steps for narrowing your property search.
Research the area - Once you’ve decided on the area that you want to buy in, do some investigating. Speak to the people in the area and find out what kinds of proposed changes (if any) are coming to the neighborhood. Are the schools and other amenities suitable?
Ultimately, these steps and preparations should help you to make a motivated and attractive offer quickly, improving your chances of beating out the competition.
But remember, stay strict on your wants, needs, and budget. Don’t let a competitive market push you into making decisions that you might regret.
Better yet, take on the services of a dedicated real estate agent with in-depth knowledge of the market. They can monitor new listings and could even find your perfect property before it even hits the market.
